Separated at Birth: TPM’s Brian Beutler

TPM‘s Brian Beutler (pronounced Beyootler or Boytler) appeared on Current TV’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” program this week and suddenly his Doppelgänger emerged. It’s twice-divorced Barry Williams who played  Greg Brady on the hit 70s show “The Brady Bunch.” As one journo described the Boybander, he’s a “poor man’s Dave Weigel.” But we think he could be so much more. If the Bradys ever make a comeback, take note Hollywood producers, Beutler’s your man.

To be sure, Williams’ career has had its twists and turns. In 2008 he appeared on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” as a friend of one of the addicts. In 2010, he was a judge on a local Escondido, Calif. “Classical Academies Got Talent” competition. And finally in 2011, he starred as a camp director in “Camp Playboy,” which is, ahem, about playboy girls engaging in topless slumber parties, naked hikes and more.
